Consider the two random variables $X_1$ and $X_2$ defined via i.i.d, non-negative random variables $Y_1$ and $Y_2$ as

$ X_1=\min(Y_1,Y_2)\\$

$ X_2=\min(Y_1,Y_1)$ – (maximally correlated)

If you have written the question correctly, then $X_2=Y_1$ (minimum of two functions is the function itself. Remember that random variables are functions).

Then it’s always the case that $X_1 \leq X_2$ as just by definition, minimum of two functions is always less than or equal to each of the two functions. Alternatively, $\min(Y_1,Y_2)=\dfrac{Y_1+Y_2-|Y_1-Y_2|}{2}$, and show that this expression is always less than or equal to $Y_1$
